Perfect pre-owned student vehicles from Retnev Motoring


Retnev Motoring in Polokwane offers parents the perfect opportunity to buy a well looked after pre-owned small segment vehicle big enough for a busy student life but that is most importantly fuel efficient and reliable.
Tim Baber, Sales Manager at Retnev Motoring invited students and their parents to visit their showroom and view vehicles available for students. “When a parent or student buys a vehicle from us we would gladly give the student R5 000 cash back to enjoy as they like. A student should bring proof of enrolment at any university or tertiary institution to qualify for the promotion,” Baber said.
Retnev Motoring stocks a wide variety of cars and bakkies but for a student nothing would fit better than a Volkswagen Polo Vivo, a Ford Fiesta or Toyota Etios Cross.
Baber indicated that most stock has low mileage, a service plan or manufacturer warranty. Extended plans are also available.

Ford Fiesta 1,0 EcoBoost

The Fiesta is cool, modern and sleek, from its elongated headlights to the aerodynamic rear spoiler. It stands out in a crowd and comes with a wealth of features, including automatic headlights that sense when they need to turn on, as well as rain-sensing wipers that turn on and adjust their speed automatically for light or heavy rain.
Toyota Etios Cross
The 2016 Toyota Etios Cross is more than just great value for money; it’s the full package – a city-conqueror with a whole lot of get-up-and-go that will leave you smiling from ear to ear. Its bold athletic look is backed up by a lively 1,5 litre engine with enough power to tackle any quick mission and classic Etios fuel economy to top it all off. It also comes with all the interior features and more than enough space to put you in your comfort zone.
